I need the demensions or at least the depth of both large and small rifle primer pockets.
 
I just got both small and large primer pocket uniformers. I tried the large primer pocket uniformer without adjustment, on an unfired case and it cut almost 2 hundredths of an inch deeper than the height of a new Remington BR primer. A primer should seat .002-.004 below the face of the case head, and the way I see it, this uniformer needs to be adjusted, but I need the correct depth before I ruin a bunch of brass.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

 I have a chart somewhere with primer pocket dimensions, all I can find now on my computer is a chart with primer dimensions and BR primers is not included. Will have a look tomorrow at the computer at work.

That's ok GA.
I took the info from the link and checked the primer pocket that I had uniformed and it met the spec.s.

Here's an interesting article with some tests done on various brands. It also has dimensions:
